Founded in Vienna, Austria in 1947, AKG has built a legendary reputation in the professional audio industry for products that
perform flawlessly. The reputation of AKG and its celebrated quality are built on more than 55 years of experience, incredible
design, meticulous craftsmanship and a clear understanding of what truly sounds right.
AKG introduced the K 140 in 1974 and the K 240 Monitor in 1975, which became the most widely used headphones in
recording studios and broadcast facilities worldwide. Generations of musicians and audio engineers use these AKG products
to create great mixes, hit songs and albums cherished by millions around the world.
The new AKG Professional Studio headphones carry on the tradition of these audio tools and are a sound investment that will
pay handsome returns with years of flawless sonic performance for professional recording engineers and demanding users of

use and transportation.

The new XXL transducers use AKG-™s patented Varimotion (PAT. AT
403.751, US 6,185,809) diaphragm to ensure extremely accurate re-
sponse at any listening level. This technology creates a diaphragm that is
thinner, more elastic toward the outside edges for more powerful bass
response and thicker, less resonant in the center for pure, accurate mids
and clear, detailed highs.The large size of the transducers makes
the overall sound more life-like and three-dimensional to capture the
emotional and sonic content of your soundtracks.
